Backstage interview with Top Flight.

Lexi Nair is with Dante & Darius Martin as they come off a big win over The Kingdom in the Zero Hour. They’d been apart for months after Darius’ scary car accident, but they seem better than ever. That’s right! Top Flight is back with a big win in their ROH debut against The Kingdom! “The Coldest Tag Team in the Game” has been on fire! And when ice melts into water, all the other tag teams will find themselves drowning because- Wait, in walk the Jericho Appreciation Society’s Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker. What’re they talking about? Ice, fire, water, drowning?

The JAS isn’t going to throw out congratulations. All Top Flight should be congratulated on is making it through a match without tearing another ligament! A team that deserves congratulations for winning is the JAS! You get what they’re saying? Lexi, take a walk. She moves aside, Daddy Magic asks the Martins if they wanna take a swing, and Dante does! The brawl is on and headed further back! Lexi calls for help, but will these two be brawling all the way to Dynamite? No, they brawl out from backstage and near THE stage! Darius CLUBS Daddy Magic but Cool Hand Ange throws Dante to the stage!

Dante KICKS Parker away, refs hurry out but Dante FLIES to wipe out everyone! Fans fire up but refs separate these teams. Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but then Menard gets a mic. Parker takes it, though, to shout, “So this is Final Battle, right? We’re all having a good time tonight, right? Y’all feeling nostalgic? Hey, how ’bout you morons pipe down, cuz Cool Hand Ange has a question for ya. If ROH was so great, then why did it die in the first place?! It died because ROH has always been chock full of garbage, flippy floppy, pro-wrestlers like Top Flight! And there was ONE moan who could resurrect it. And that man is The Ocho, CHRIS JERICHO!”

Menard takes the mic now and says, “Do you wanna know what makes Daddy Magic’s nipples hard?!” Fans are torn on that. Menard brings out the PURPLE BUCKET HAT! “CLAUDIO! After Chris Jericho defeats you tonight, you are gonna become one-half of a tag team with Jake Hager, and you’re gonna be called The Hat Trick! How do ya like that?! HUH!?” Fans are torn on that name. Menard then shouts at Wheeler Yuta! “Daniel Garcia is gonna tap your ass out, because you got nothing, man! So there you have it, folks! There you have it, folks! A clean sweep for the Jericho-” But wait! Here comes Yuta! The Pure Championship is up next, but Yuta storms in to run off Menard & Parker.

 

ROH Pure Championship: Daniel Garcia VS Wheeler Yuta!

This rematch has been a long time coming. They are 1-1-1 all time, and this continues to be about Jericho Appreciation Society and sports entertainment VS Blackpool Combat Club and professional wrestling. Garcia still says he’s the Dragonslayer for defeating Bryan Danielson, but will he be the one slain tonight? Or will The Decoder fail to solve his Daniel Garcia problem?

The introductions are made, the title is raised, and our judges for this match are Christopher Daniels, BJ Whitmer, and Jerry Lynn. The Code of Honor is NOT upheld, and we see if there is honor restored to this title!

The bell rings, and immediately, the forearms fly! Those are okay because they’re not closed fists! And they just keep going! Fans fire up as these two don’t back down at all! But then Yuta gets the edge, only for Garcia to shove and ROCK Yuta with a haymaker! The ref issues a warning, and we’re not even 30 seconds into this!

Garcia gets in the ring, he drags Yuta up and grinds his forearm into Yuta’s neck! Garcia lets off, but Yuta CHOPS! And CHOPS!

Winners: The Briscoes, by submission (NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions)

#DemBoys went through hell and then some, all to settle things with FTR! They are now THIRTEEN-TIME ROH World Tag Team Champions, but this match may very well have taken thirteen YEARS off every man’s life! Will Jay & Mark still show that they bleed for ROH?

But wait! THE GUNN SONS attack FTR!! Austin & Colten beat down Cash & Dax! Fans boo the Ass Boys for picking at the bones! And they tell the fans, “SUCK IT!” Austin throws off his now bloody shirt as Colten fetches mics. “FTR’s legacy is DYING! And we will not stop until the Gunns are the ones who kill it!!” But the Briscoes come back! They run off Austin & Colten, and then help FTR up to their feet. Dax tells Austin & Colten that they’re no longer Ass Boys. “From here on out, our mission is to beat your asses! Top Guys, OUT!” Austin & Colten just put targets on their backs, will FTR be the ones to end the Gunn Sons’ legend before it ever begins?

Joe then pulls up floor mats, just like he did against Darby Allin!

Joe drags Juice up, reels him in, but Juice slips out of the suplex to SLEEPER! But Joe slips around to put Juice in a SLEEPER! Juice grabs at the apron skirt, gets a foot up, and pushes off to RAM Joe into railing! Both men are down in a heap but Juice crawls away. Juice goes around the way while fans rally and duel.

Juice endures, fights up, but Juice knees him low, then CHOPS him! And HEADBUTTS him! Juice drops to a knee, Joe BUZZSAWS him down! Joe says this was a bad idea for Juice, and he JABS Juice again. And again! And again and again, but Juice JABS back! “JOE! JUICE! JOE!” Juice gets the edge, keeps going, and then he whips. Joe reverses to wrench and atomic drop! Joe runs to BOOT Juice down! And SENTONS! Juice flails and flounders away!

The bell rings and the two stare down. Claudio offers the Code of Honor, but Jericho kicks him low! Jericho bails out, and he chases Caprice Coleman and Ian Riccabonni off of commentary!!

Jericho survives and crawls away to the apron but Claudio keeps his cool.

Claudio storms over to Jericho and bumps him off buckles. And again! Claudio drags Jericho up to the top rope, to gut wrench! Fans fire up for the SUPER GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Fans rally behind Claudio as he storms up on Jericho. Jericho stands, Claudio trophy lifts him! Claudio TOSSES Jericho onto the ropes! Jericho is stuck, Claudio runs to BOOT him down! Fans rally as Claudio goes to the apron to CANNONBALL but misses as Jericho moves! Claudio crashes ‘n’ burns, the ring count starts.

Will the Swiss Superman be stronger than ever now that he has this title back? Will ROH be stronger than ever now that Claudio has this title back?


My Thoughts:

An awesome event, although yes I did skip a bit. The Zero Hour is free on YouTube, anyone can go watch those. But I did check the finishes, and I love that “Nose Dive Bomb” that Top Flight used to beat The Kingdom, that is an awesome and clever finish. And I know I skipped LFI VS #allheARt, but I again saw the finish, and that three count was botched. LFI was likely meant to win, but that’s why LFI beat the crap out of Fox and Christian after. I think a great way to make up for that botch would be to give us a feud within ROH between those teams. That’d be something to help carry what happened here into the upcoming Honor Club weekly show. Which yes, Tony Khan came out after things went off the air to say all that.

I did keep the Keith Lee grudge tag match because I wanted to see what I knew would happen: Swerve ditched Keith. He didn’t join up with Shane Taylor Promotions but Swerve ditching Keith was enough to fit what I knew for the story. I’m surprised Keith still won, who knows how that’ll play out on AEW. What was really crazy about tonight was that all but one title changed hands. Mercedes VS Athena was great stuff, and a great win for Athena as the hometown girl. Great Pure Championship match, that was a very creative way to use up Yuta’s ropebreaks while still giving him the win. I still feel like there should’ve been more to Garcia’s dilemma of “pro-wrestler or sports entertainer?” but maybe, just maybe, they can try that again now that Garcia isn’t champion.

The Six Man title match was a lot of fun, but I had a feeling Castle & The Boys were going to lose to The Embassy. As I said before in Elevation (I think), it would be embarrassing for The Embassy to lose that match so it had to happen this way. That tag title match, just holy crap. They went so hard, and Briscoes winning was a touch of a surprise. But at the same time, I also said that there’s no way Austin & Colten beat FTR after FTR wins something like this. So Briscoes get the belts for a record 13th time, and now FTR move into an awkward afterthought feud with Austin & Colten and I can’t be sure but I feel like FTR should just squash the hell out of them cuz of this.

Samoa Joe VS Juice Robinson was a very good match, but boy did they have a hard act to follow. Joe being the one champion to retain their title is pretty big, but it makes sense because of the building story he has as a double champion. And Jericho VS Claudio was an awesome main event. I should’ve figured it’d get overbooked with Parker & Menard running out there, it helps inject some of that “sports entertainment” into things, and shows that Claudio can overcome it with his “pro-wrestling.” Claudio winning to not just take the title back but to keep from joining the JAS was quite the surprise, but that was a great moment for ROH fans. BCC is on top, as Moxley promised, I guess we’ll see what they do as part of kicking off Honor Club’s revival.

My Score: 9/10

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going.

Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges! Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
